Fensterbau Postponed Over Concerns for CoronavirusFebruary 28th, 2020 by Drew Vass, Executive Editor
Officials for NürnbergMesse announced this morning the postponement of Fensterbau Frontale, citing concerns over the current outbreak of the coronavirus. The decision follows feedback from customers and industry representatives, a press release explained. As a result, the event will not take place as planned, from March 18-21, in Nuremberg, Germany, instead postponed to “a date in 2020 yet to be specified.”
“We hope that the industry will understand the decision to postpone,” said Petra Wolf, member of the management board for NürnbergMesse, the company heading the event. “The aim of every exhibition has to be to create a special experience for exhibitors and visitors likewise and to enable networking and expansion of existing business relations. Unfortunately, this goal cannot be achieved under the current circumstances. All the more reason for us to put high pressure on the task to find the best possible alternative date for such an important event for our customers.”
There were signs of doubt among some exhibitors ahead of the decision to postpone.
“We are not sure if we will be at the show or not, if they continue [despite the virus],” a representative for Simonswerk told [DWM] editor Drew Vass just prior to the show’s postponement. “That is still up in the air.”
